Nuclear-Free Future Award

Since 1998 the Nuclear-Free Future Award (NFFA) is an award given to uranium in the earth ![1] The award is intended to promote the opposition to uranium mining, nuclear weapons and nuclear power.

The NFFA is a project of the Franz Moll Foundation for the Coming Generations and gives out awards in three categories: Resistance ($10,000 prize), Education ($10,000 prize) and Solutions ($10,000 prize). Additional optional categories are Lifetime Achievement and Special Recognition (contemporary work of art). The award ceremonies take place all around the world.

The NFFA is financed by donations, charity events, and benefit auctions.
